locations (at least in the south Bay Area) are located within a large shopping
center without direct access from a main street, and where there are typically
no immediately adjacent residential areas.
This means that customer drives into
parking lot of a shopping center first, before parking or entering
drive-through area. This is not the case at the Hamilton/Almarida site, where Access is directly from Hamilton, a main thoroughfare.
Examples of typical In-N-Out
shopping center locations:
1. Coleman and 880 just
south of airport. Location is within the 20 acre Lowe's shopping center. Customers
exit off of Coleman onto Newhall and then pull into the shopping center. No direct access from Coleman. No residential immediately nearby.
2. Mercado location in
Santa Clara. This is in the Mercado shopping area that includes AMC Mercado,
and near Mission College off of Great American Parkway and 101. You drive to
the shopping center on a side road and then pull into the center parking lot to access In-N-Out. No
direct access from main thoroughfare. No residential nearby.
3. Santa Teresa
location, south of Blossom Hill Road in south San Jose. Again, this is located
within Kohl's shopping center parking lot. Need to drive into shopping center
parking lot and then get access to In-N-Out.
4. Capital Expressway
and Tully Road in southeast San Jose. Located within a Safeway shopping center
parking lot. No direct access from Capital Expressway. Need to drive into center parking lot to access In-N-Out.
